We arrive at Disney’s 48th animated feature, “Bolt”. Released in 2008, the film was a bit of a hit and received much critical praise as well as positive reviews. And according to some people, this film was the start of a new age of Disney animation’s resurgence, a sort of “second Disney Renaissance”, if you will. The animation of this film and the future ones would improve dramatically from what the past films have been as would the quality of the films themselves. And this is a film that I myself quite enjoy! Yet, I have to admit that I consider this movie to be the most FORGETTABLE movie in the Disney Canon!
I still like it, but I really forget much of what happens in this movie after I see it, it’s right up there with “Dinosaur” in terms of “forgettability”! So what’s the story? Continue reading “Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters #48: Rhino’s Owner”
Well, readers, I’ve updated the indexes at the top of the page. There now exists a page where all my “Top 13” lists are alphabetically indexed, as well as a page linking to my other blog, “My Live Action Disney Project”. Enjoy!
Just wanted to point out that I’ve, in the past week or so, put up a new page entitled “My Thoughts Index” (You can find the button at the top of the page). Basically it’s an alphabetical index of all the animated films that I’ve done a “My Thoughts” on. Hopefully, this will provide for easier searching for past reviews and a more organized site.
I also have the “Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters Index” button at the top of the page, in case you’ve never noticed it before. There you can find all the movies of the Disney Canon in chronological order as well as find my forgotten/minor character posts that I’ve done for each film till date for my project.
Hope this helps keep things more organized!
We are at the 47th film in the animated Disney Canon, “Meet the Robinsons”. Released in 2007, the film wasn’t a huge mega-hit, and I guess it wasn’t really an embarrassing flop either. But in terms of Disney Canon quality, many people put this one pretty low on the list! And…yeah, it’s definitely no masterpiece, but I really enjoy this movie! Maybe, it’s the family element, maybe it’s the time travel element, maybe it’s the overall fun, I dunno!
Oh, let me talk about the film for those of you who haven’t seen it or have no idea what I’m talking about. Continue reading “Disney Canon-Forgotten/Minor Characters #47: The College Professor”

Actor Michael Ansara (1922-2013) has died at the age of 91! Once married to Barbara Eden of “I Dream of Jeannie” fame, the actor was famously known as Commander Kang on three “Star Trek” series,
Cochise in “Broken Arrow”,
and Abu Sufyan in “The Message”, a film about the story of Islam and the Prophet Muhammad.
In terms of animation, Mr. Ansara has lent his voice many time. His most famous animated role would probably be Mr. Freeze in “Batman: The Animated Series” and its many spinoffs.
This is an actor that many of us will be remembering, and I’m no exception!
